More U.S. shoppers prefer Sony Corp's upcoming PlayStation 4 than Microsoft Corp's Xbox One, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll, as the industry's two leading videogame console makers prepare to do battle this holiday season.
Asked about their interest in dedicated game devices, 26 percent of 1,297 people surveyed online last week say they are likely to purchase the new PlayStation 4 when available, versus 15 percent opting for the Xbox One.

OP: I dunno if this poll can predict anything. The Xbox One's problems aren't common knowledge amongst consumers. I was test driving a car this weekend and the sales guy wanted to chat about buying the XOne. Would be nice to see a company actually pay a price for angering its customers tho.
